The third major change is to the Upper Promenade on Deck 5, which acts as the ship’s main thoroughfare and on Dream and Magic runs through the middle of the ship from the Atrium to the Art Lounge. But unlike her sisters, on Breeze this walkway has been shifted to run alongside the promenade deck windows instead of running through the middle of the ship, allowing for larger seating areas at the entrance of venues located along the promenade. “The reason for this is that the feedback we had from guests is that it can seem slightly ‘enclosed’,” said Perez. “What we want to do is give a feeling of walking by the sea.”


In terms of entertainment, look out for the Hasbro Game Show, in which popular board games such as Monopoly and Yahtzee are brought to life on stage. As Carnival’s legendary cruise director and blogger John Heald said recently:


“I have been spending some time with the folks from HASBRO who have been designing, helping and scripting this very lavish and ultimately brilliant fun game show. The idea is to bring audiences and players closer together in an evening of fun and fantastic prizes. It is going to be a huge hit.”


Just a few tweaks


In terms of tweaks there will be minor changes, mainly in the form of modernization of a number of the more popular entertainment and dining venues introduced on Magic.


These include the RedFrog Rum Bar and the RedFrog Pub – Carnival’s first pub at sea with its own-brand beer, ThirstyFrog Red – the BlueIguana Tequila Bar and the Blue Iguana Cantina, the EA Sports Bar and Guy’s Burger Joint. Punchliners

Comedy Club will reappear, as will the Library Bar, with its self-service wine dispensers. SportSquare was another big hit on Magic – and will reappear on Breeze – as will the ropes course, where passengers can be harnessed ready to clamber over tightropes, swinging beams and nets – high above the ship. And in keeping with its strong family- friendly credentials, Camp Carnival – its huge kids’ space for two to 17-year-olds – stays the same.


Triumphant debut The majority of Carnival’s passengers are from the US, even those who cruise in the Med. Last year the line tested out seven-, nine- and 12-day cruises, with 12-day cruises proving to be far the most popular. This season they will just be offering 12-day cruises to cater to the US market, most of whom are coming all the way over and wanting a decent length break. Breeze departs on her maiden voyage on 3 June


from Venice, calling at Dubrovnik, Athens, Izmir, Sicily, Naples, Civitavecchia, Livorno, Monte Carlo and Marseilles, arriving in Barcelona on 15 June. She then starts a summer schedule of 12-day Mediterranean voyages following this itinerary through to 25 October 2012 when she sets sail to the Caribbean via Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Canary Islands, Antigua to St. Maarten. Judging by the success of Magic’s season in the


Med last year – and the positive response at Carnival’s return to Europe after a three-year absence – Breeze’s European debut is set to be a triumphant one.
